Blues legend James "T-Model" Ford has had a rough last couple of years. Several debilitating strokes, along with numerous other medical conditions, have forced him to retire from playing. With no more income and bills continuing to pile up higher and higher, he needs the help of his fans. That is why several friends of T's have come together to offer you some great stuff in return for giving the oldest bluesman in the world a hand.
T-Model and his wife, Stella, have given us their blessing in making this an official T-Model Ford fundraiser.
What We Need
The $5,000 number is just a goal that we're trying to reach. Something that would have some significant impact on T-Model's situation. If we can raise more, great!
